@AngeTheDude: It only gets better. Vol 3 goes into the initial invasion and from there it gets absolutely NUTS.

@Undeadpool: That is an awesome book. Nice to see someone else reads it. I just got my hands on the 2nd trade. Have you read the whole series? How is it?

Also, this game not being dual-joystick seems like a mistake.

Anyone notice how Ryan spends the first 8-15 minutes of Quick Looks detailing menus... drives me slightly mad! :D

Lost interest about 10 minutes in. Think I'll be skipping this.

I'm getting a very "Fear Agent" vibe from this game. It's a comic about a redneck who winds up in a squad of frontline troops against an Earth invasion. This has a really similar vibe.

Seems OK, but I'd rather play Metal Slug.

Metal slug with RPG elements is welcomed in my book, which this game seems like.

Couldn't stop staring at the humping robot during the fighting.

This is gonna be an odd comment, but I would love to see this ported to the Ipad.

Goddamn Ryan loves menus.

Skip 2mins, still in menu, skip to 5 mins, still in menu, skip to 7 mins, in a different menu. Gameplay starts about 9 minutes in.

Why does Ryan feel like he needs to show every menu part? It feels like I am watching a PR dude show me their game.

Did you see the SSX Quick Look? It was forty-five minutes long, and Ryan spent approximately twenty-eight minutes in the goddamn menu. Situation's gettin' outta control.

Brevity is key.

Are you saying we need a UI-ntervention?

Why does ryan spend so much time in the menus for a game called shoot many robots?

Double Jump, a concept typical in platform video games where the player may defy gravity by performing a jump after a jump, usually by pressing the jump button twice, to achieve twice the height gained by performing only one jump.

I hate to say it but after trying the demo I'd be more interested if it just controlled in a dual stick way.

Oh man, the Fruit Fucker Hat animation is adorable. In that horny pervert kinda way. Also, Vinny's reaction to it is priceless!

I love the idea of mass loot, experience gaining, and multilayer co op being the focus of a XBLA game but the game itself just looks bland :(

Please, Ryan, explain what this 'checkpoint' thingy is.

They once explained that they do that kind of stuff for people who come to the site and watch their videos who don't play games themselves and wouldn't know what a checkpoint is.

Fruit fucker's really going at it. It kept me distracted for the whole video.

Demiurge really nailed the art style here. It looks like a proper 3D version of a Metal Slug-esque experience. Bravo, guys.

But I'm really shocked Ryan and Vinny didn't mention Metal Slug, or Contra, with regard to the controls. It's nice they didn't complain incessantly about it lacking dual analog controls (like, say, IGN's review), but c'mon. Why did they do the controls this way? Because it's a throwback to Metal Slug style arcade schmups. Duh.

I fell asleep watching this quick look for the 1st time. Outside the Fruit Fucker, this looks like it has no appeal.

Honestly, I found Fruit Fucker to be a huge distraction. Good GOD this game is so bland and lacking anything resembling a personality. Why would I play this when I can get my Metal Slug on instead?

Actually I can hardly stand looking at menus at all, no matter what the order, but they have a place. In a QL I do not care about the order as long as it is cursery and I get an idea of their function. I can't ignore that. The game proper, OH Heall ya. I would say 10/90 (maybe 20/80) unless the game is menu heavy. Some games are.

I was only considering buying this. Then I saw the fruit fucker. There is no question as to if I will be buying this or not anymore.

Yep! Almost 10 minutes of messing around in menus or standing idle is sure to be how all Ryan QL's start out.

@d00dCOMEON: Yea, because if I wanted some DLC for this game, I would want to get it from the dashboard. I'm definitely not buying DLC from a convenient link on the main menu. Otherwise, the game would have NO GamerCredTM.

Ryan! Less talk more play! You spend so much time in the menus lately. Don't.
